Notes from the Tch Laureates

I love incorporating new strategies that help to elevate student engagement and learning. In fact, I regularly search Teaching Channel, Pinterest, and the like for new and creative ideas to mix up a routine that seems rote. This week, check out these three strategy videos, each highlighting a new and fun engagement strategy. Each bite-sized video also features an accountability measure to act as a vehicle for formative assessment.

These strategies are innovative in that they reimagine a common practice. Through creativity, students are more engaged and active participants in the classroom, which allows the teacher to more accurately gauge what students understand, what they know, and what they are able to do.

I hope you find a way to make these great strategies your own and add them to your teacher toolbox today.
